Transcript Requests

RPTS has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to process secure online orders for official transcripts using any major credit card. The cost is $7 each, plus a processing fee.

The Clearinghouse website includes instructions on placing your order, including delivery options and fees. Although you can order as many transcripts as you like in a single session, a processing fee will be charged per recipient. Your card will only be charged after your order has been completed. Email updates and online order tracking are available. Use the Status Tool to track your order.

Please note that all outstanding balances due to RPTS must be paid before transcripts will be released.

How do I find information about students who will be graduating soon from RPTS?

Students at RPTS maintain a student profile page with information about themselves, their status regarding proceeding toward ordination, and some of their preaching and writing. You can access these profiles at https://studentprofiles.rpts.edu.
